Crawl Space Encapsulation

Crawl Space Encapsulation

Keeping mold out of your home starts with moisture control and prevention. Mold and mildew aren’t only caused by serious water damage. They can also be caused by outdoor moisture and water that can get into your home. Our certified crawl space specialists understand water, energy conservation, building construction and engineering controls and how to manage each of these to install or repair a crawlspace encapsulation system that yields a cleaner, safer, drier and more energy efficient building.  ServiceMaster Cleaning & Restoration by SteamExpress offers crawl space encapsulation in Routt, Moffat, and Grand counties, including the Steamboat Springs, Craig, Kremmling, and Grand Lake areas.

Encapsulation Process

  • Inspecting the structural integrity of the building for safety
  • Identifying the source to determine the type of damage that occurred
  • Evaluating and remediating any areas with water damage as a result of fire suppression
  • Evaluating sensitive materials and removing contents from the building that may be damaged as a result of smoke and soot particles
  • Performing structural restoration and deodorizing surfaces to pre-loss condition
  • Returning items to the original location and helping to restore your normal operation.

Why Choose Us

Better Indoor Air Quality

Since up to 50% of household air can flow up from your crawl space, it’s important to keep this typically unsightly space as clean and dry as possible. Since water vapor enters the crawl space from the ground (even through cement), crawl space encapsulation is widely accepted as the best way to keep the moisture out and improve indoor air quality.

Property Protection

As moisture rots wood and causes hardwood floors to buckle, crawl space encapsulation can reduce the chances of costly floor repairs while also creating an inhospitable area for pests and wood-destroying insects.

Energy Savings

Crawl space encapsulation prevents air leaks and protects the crawl space from moisture issues. Insulating your crawl space can reduce energy bills by up to 20%, according to Advanced Energy’s research.

Comfort

Isolating the crawl space from the ground and outside air helps prevent high humidity levels and moisture from seeping into the living space and causing people to feel either hot or sticky or cold and clammy.
